This entry already exists in the following tables (ODBC -2035)


I have a usertable and I am trying to add a record to it. The usertable isn't linked to an object.

Some times this works fine, other times I get error "This entry already exists in the following tables (ODBC -2035)". I have of course checked that the record does not already exist!

Here is my code. "Echo" is a function that makes a debugging log, the log appears below.

'sParentItemKey = item key e.g. "B1000"
'LastRowNumber = integer
'key in 'OCHBOSCL' table will be in form "B1000.1"

'add a new record to the child table
Echo("Need to add new row")
Dim oUDT As SAPbobsCOM.UserTable
oUDT = oCompany.UserTables.Item("OCHBOSCL")
Echo("oUDT status: " & oUDT.GetAsXML.ToString & vbCrLf & "Table/code: " & oUDT.TableName.ToString & " " & oUDT.Code.ToString)
LastRowNumber = LastRowNumber + 1
Dim sUDTKey As String = sParentItemKey & "." & LastRowNumber
Echo(vbTab & "New OCHBOSCL key=" & sUDTKey)
oUDT.Code = sUDTKey
oEdit = oColumns.Item("ChildName").Cells.Item(Row).Specific()
sValue = Trim(oEdit.Value)
Echo(vbTab & "Name = " & sValue)
oUDT.Name = sValue
oUDT.UserFields.Fields.Item("U_Parent").Value = sParentItemKey
oEdit = oColumns.Item("ChildItm").Cells.Item(Row).Specific()
sValue = Trim(oEdit.Value)
Echo(vbTab & "U_ChildItm = " & sValue)
oUDT.UserFields.Fields.Item("U_ChildItm").Value = sValue
'I also update a couple more user fields here as above, removed for clarity
Echo("udt code before .add = " & oUDT.Code.ToString)
Echo("udt XML before .add = " & oUDT.GetAsXML.ToString)
Dim AddResult As Integer = oUDT.Add
Echo("Add UDT = " & AddResult)
Echo("udt code after .add = " & oUDT.Code.ToString)
Echo("udt XML after add = " & oUDT.GetAsXML.ToString)
If AddResult = -2035 Then
    Echo("2035 bug")
End If
If AddResult = 0 Then
    Echo("Record Added. Key is: " & oCompany.GetNewObjectKey())
    Echo("Add record error: " & oCompany.GetLastErrorCode & ": " & oCompany.GetLastErrorDescription.ToString)
End If

2035 bug

Add record error: -2035: This entry already exists in the following tables (ODBC -2035)

You can see from the debug log that the data is being copied into the usertable object as it appears in the XML for the usertable. I tried adding a ".update" after .add but this didn't work. The data is definately not being added to the database.

Does SBO have some sort of key index that could have an old reference to a record with the same key on it?

I've been looking at this for hours, looked at loads of other examples and I just can't see the problem.

Thanks for any help you can offer.
